A few years ago I started developing a "voice" in my mind; it just came from no where. At the time I was going through the worst period of my life (struggling with depression, etc) so I assumed it was my own voice trying to help me out. This voice would speak to me in a calm, comforting manner. If I was feeling upset or beating myself up about something *he* (will get to that in a sec) would reassure me immediately. I'd just like to know if this is my own inner voice or my Spirit Guide? If I try imagine where the voice is coming from I see a dark figure in my mind (silhouette of a man) but can't see any details, like facial features, eyes, etc. If I try speak to him and ask who he is, he says he is my Spirit Guide and need to put my Ego aside and stop doubting, but I feel a bit insane with this "voice in my head". If I ask him questions or ask for advice, he answers instantly, almost before I even start speaking. A few weeks ago I woke up randomly and saw the same dark figure in my mind, standing in my room watching over me. I'm usually scared to death of spirits, but wasn't afraid of this figure at all. Then the other night I randomly heard someone calling my name and woke up instantly and no one was around... was it him?...Could I have a clairaudience ability? Ever since I can remember, before falling asleep or lying in bed silently I'd hear random voices or sounds, almost like browsing through TV channels. It would be loud and clear until I fall asleep or snap out of my relaxed state. Could that be linked with "the voice" in any way?

Thank you.

Without knowing the kinds of things this spirit is telling you I don't have much of an opinion really. I'm not the expert on this, but if it were me (and I'm thankful it is not) I would carefully scrutinize every word that he said to me. Does it increase love or fear? Does it confuse or clarify? Please do not suspend your sound judgment simply because it asks you to.

Hi Lauhan,
I would go with the flow and listen to him - i, like you went through depression. I while ago i was going to bed praying not to wake up. Then i began to have these really vivid dreams - all of which "featured" a different woman.I always felt and feel VERY attached to them and all of the women in my dreams are very,very familiar - although i don't know them. It is always so very, very pleasing for me to have these dreams as there is no intimacy within my own marriage.  Last April 15th i was awoken by what seemed like a shotgun firing which caused me to wake up - as i did i felt my whole body being forced up towards the ceiling - as i did i heard many voices going "WHOAAAHHHH"!!! as if they were all rooting and pleased for me!!!- although i just went into a panic - the next thing i knew i was waking up - i must of fallen asleep. I havent had an O.O.B.E. since - but the dreams keep coming .........AND the voices!!! And what has prompted me to reply to you is that this morning - just as i was waking - this soft female voice said - "I love you - always"!!! what a way to wake up - i was so overjoyed!!!!As far as i am concerned it doesn't get better than that!!!!

Listen, but don't necessarily act. When you're awake and alone, evaluate what was said, and relate it to events in your life. If there is a clear connection, it may be that it's just your inner voice processing your experiences and trying to rationalise them. However, if it seems to have nothing to do with you, it may well be that you have a gift for clairaudience. Always analyse everything though - don't accept it unconditionally, just because it seems to originate from the other side.

DiminishingInsanity gave very good advice. If it is a spirit guide you want to make sure it has your best interests at "heart." Everything out there isn't necessarily safe.  Personally, I don't like that "he" told you to put aside your ego and stop doubting. Who we are, our will, our doubts are what make us human. So be very careful about following everything said without question.

As long as this voice is loving, kind, and always suggest you take the high road, it is a benevolent spirit, or your spirit guide. If you hear a voice and it has negative overtones, or maybe telling you to do something under-handed or duplicitous, you may want to go see a psychiatrist about the possibility of being schizophrenic.
